FTP Resources

Post by macslui »

Hi all,
this is my first topic.

I successfully installed SamyGO for D Series but, as others on this forum, I'm not able to browse SMB folders.
Already tried to remove cache content database but still no success.

I see that I can setup an FTP server as Media Player source. My network storage (Netgear STORA) has an ftp server so I want to give a try to this solution.

The question is: How Can I configure Media Player to streadm from an FTP Source?
Inside init folder there is no service for ftp client.

Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english. :oops:

Ok, model is UE40D6500. For firmware version I need to check when I come back home. ASAP I'll give you this info too.

Anyway, just to better explain, sometimes I'm able to browse both SMB and NFS but, after a TV restart (and SamyGO restart of course) I can see only the entry point of protocol mount (NFS, SMB) and browse only first folder in hierarchy (without files).

I've done my test with SMB only, NFS only (enabling the script 03_03_nfsmount.init) and both protocoll with the same results.

I want to try FTP (inplace of NFS or SMB) because my Netgear STORA handle better this protocol.

Have you dlna script dissabled (djmount.init.dis) ?
dissabling djmount solves the issue where you can`t enter to samba or nfs shares or enter only up to third level of directories.

How to watch ftp resources on TV


1. Download:
curlftpfs.tar.gz
(for arm models) or for Mstar (to be updated)
2. Unpack files from archive (use ftp or samba to upload to TV):

Code: Select all

/mtd_rwcommon/widgets/user/SamyGO/SamyGO/etc/init.d/04_04_curlftp.init
/mtd_rwcommon/widgets/user/SamyGO/SamyGO/opt/privateer/usr/bin/curlftpfs
3. Open and edit the 04_04_curlftp.init (write your login data and server`s IP address)

Code: Select all

USER
PASSWD
SERVER
For example:

Code: Select all

##### CHANGE MEEEEE !!!!! ######
USER="root"
PASSWD=""
##### CHANGE MEEEEE END ######

Code: Select all

SERVER=192.168.1.210
After restart you have to find your ftp server mounted to SamyGO virt. usb-curlftp-IP.
I think it is not bad idea to give permossions to script and binary (over shell)

Code: Select all

chmod 755 /mtd_rwcommon/widgets/user/SamyGO/SamyGO/etc/init.d/04_04_curlftp.init
chmod 755 /mtd_rwcommon/widgets/user/SamyGO/SamyGO/opt/privateer/usr/bin/curlftpfs
Binary for Mstar devices(D5500-D5700) is available, testers needed.

Seems to me that the init script is not quite correct... at least on my Mstar model

1) the set username and password is overwritten on next line by data read from /mtd_rwarea/smb_userdata (it needs to be deleted or commented out)
2) the username and password is not used in the actual curlftpfs command, so it tries to log in the FTP server anonymously (it needs to be changed to "curlftpfs $USER:$PASSWD@$SERVER $DEST_DIR" to work correctly)
3) the insmod command should be probably changed to "insmod $MOD_DIR/kernel/fs/fuse/fuse.ko" instead of "insmod $SYSROOT/lib/modules/fuse.ko"

I'm afraid I won't make it working due to the nonworking(?) fuse on Mstar models (see near the end of the page: http://forum.samygo.tv/viewtopic.php?f= ... 0&start=20).

I've tried curlftpfs with original 04_04_curlftp.init and with a modified version of the same script following guidelines of Spoza.
Unfortunatly I can see my ftp server virtually mounted on /dtv/usb/curlftp but cannot go deep through folders (same as Media Player).
I'm using a user to connect to ftp server with full access to all resources (using filezilla as ftp client I'm able to browse everything).
What also can I try? Where can I see a detailed log of mounting script?

Thanks again.
